Snow chains are mandatory, even if the weather is good on your way up, it may be less so on the way back down. The police can make snow chains compulsory. Chaining areas are available during your journey. We recommend that you practice fitting this special equipment in order to save time when fitting them under more difficult conditions.

 

Your GPS: The malfunctions of your GPS and the closure of certain roads in winter, we advise you to check your itinerary carefully or follow the road signs.

 

If possible, try to arrive before nightfall: it is always easier to find your way around and your accommodation in daylight.

 

Also pack equipment to clear the snow from your car (shovel, squeegee, brush) if you have not reserved covered parking.

 

If your car stays outside during your stay, do not put the handbrake on, put the car in gear. With the cold, the brakes can get stuck.

 

Do not forget to equip yourself with sunscreen, good walking shoes, rain gear and bring  your health insurance card in case of any injuries.

 

If you are with the family, do not forget official documents, it may be requested by the lift pass company to justify reduced rates.

 

When booking ski lessons, check lesson times and levels corresponding to what you want before confirming your booking .

 

For foreign nationals, remember to take your passport. For Europeans, don’t forget your European health insurance card!
